    Heh, as long as the minipcie slot has usb lines too (most modems are using usb, not pcie because of obvious reasons), you can use a flex-cable adapter like this
    to add the sim slot.
    The contact part must be wrapped around the smaller part of the minipcie connector, as it needs to pipe the SIM electrical connection into that part, and you're good to go.

    For the average "minipcie" (actually USB) modem card you can also use "usb to minipcie" (actually still providing just USB lines + power) adapters with sim card slot like these (or a random chinese clone)

    And then you can add a half-serious modem to whatever has a usb port.
    There's already a SIM slot built in though, just look at the picture with the cover off. It's right on the board.
